A Rockville tradition, the city’s annual Independence Day celebration, returns to King Farm on Thursday, July 4 with music, fireworks and fun.

Hosted by the Mayor and Council, the celebration will once again be held at the 26-acre Mattie J.T. Stepanek Park, 1800 Piccard Drive, in King Farm, which offers easy access and ample free parking, with convenient exits within a short walk of the fireworks viewing areas.

The celebration includes live music by Uncle Jesse Band at 7 p.m., the national anthem, performed by the Victorian Lyric Opera Company at 8:50 p.m., and a fabulous 20-minute-long fireworks display at 9:15 p.m. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs, prepared food and beverage. Outside alcohol and barbecuing is prohibited.

There is no rain date. The entertainment and fireworks can be viewed from the park grounds.
Parking will be available in lots on Shady Grove and Gaither roads and Piccard Drive, near the park.

Accessible parking is available in the lot at the corner of Shady Grove and Gaither roads. Display an accessible parking pass when entering the event site. Rockville police will guide traffic to and from the designated lots before and after the event.

To prepare for the celebration, there will be no access to pickleball, basketball or tennis courts, dog park, football field, and parking lots at Mattie J.T. Stepanek Park from 7 a.m. Wednesday, July 3 through noon Friday, July 5. All closures are subject to change.
